IN-DEPTHS OF WHO I AM
"Twenty minutes at a time, three times a day."
This may be the best way to summarize my gaming addiction since a very young age. My semi-transparent purple Nintendo 64's controller would be the first thing I picked up in the morning; to the point where my parents restrained me from playing video games for more than an hour a day. I had to get creative on how to finally beat Zelda Ocarina of Time's Water Temple with twenty minutes of gameplay, and a few hours of planning in between each session.
Looking back being a gamer was pretty much an extension to the dreamer I have always been. Being allowed to get lost in amazing universes such as Zelda, Mario or Final Fantasy... I mean, who wouldn't be addicted, right?
I sure have evolved from the young kid asking for his dad's help to jump over the first hole in Mario Bros, but not by much. Don't get me wrong, to this day, I still fall in plenty of holes. I just became more stubborn and persistent enough to fall hundreds of times, until I learned how to properly leap over those precipices on my own.
My name is William, I go by the nickname FeyRazzle. Passionate gamer since the first day I put my hands on a Nintendo controller. Professional derper (let's make that a word) and recently self-discovered entertainer -goof- when I play video games. My online journey started in the summer of 2015. It is when I finally put myself in front of a camera playing games and speaking a language I barely mastered. No, English isn't my native tongue.
I'm a french Canadian born in a french environment and who lived a whole french-speaking life until I decided to become a YouTuber. Playing games was part of the motivation, but the predominant one was to be able to entertain people. Other YouTubers are able to help me through their videos, and I wanted to do it as well. I felt a need to give back for all the help I had received.
Back then I had no idea how much I would develop as an entertainer. Hell I didn't even know the introverted person I was would ever be interesting to watch. One morning I decided to give it a shot.
I took the leap.
Twitch is where I landed. My online journey led me to feel I had potential as an entertainer. When I heard there was a way to interact with people watching you LIVE as you played games, I was sold immediately.
Twitch has been my home ever since. I live and breathe the Twitch life every single day. Whether I stream or not, a stream is always running on my computer.
On September 11th, 2017 I became a Twitch Partner. Out of the 2+ Million streamers on the platform, being selected to be part of the ~20 000 Partners has been one of my biggest achievement to this date.
Something a lot of people will notice upon entering my streams is that I am a very community oriented broadcaster. The community is everything. People join streams to forget about life and focus on the moment. To have fun with friends they have made online, within a community. My focus has always been on the people that join the stream; I am live on my channel to help them have a good time.
Aim for the best, and work your way to it. No compromise.

Are you a radio DJ or Voice actor?
While I currently have an Announcer Pack (Game Commentating Voice) in the game "Paladins: Champions of the Realm" and is also an important part of my streams, I have never been affiliated to any Radio station or have ever done any "official" voice acting. That being said, we never know about future plans and/or opportunities in the domain, though!
Would you eventually play solo games on stream?
On occasions you might witness me playing other, more story driven games on the channel. Granted a game piques my curiosity.
